My colleague, Martyn Williams, forwarded me this link to a Korean blogger who has published an analysis of the malware used in an ongoing DDOS attack against government and business sites in the U.S. and South Korea.
The list is in line with sites that have been reported to me by security researchers studying this attack, but it is far more comprehensive than anything I've yet seen published.
Who is doing this? An angry teenager? Surely North Korea would be able to come up with a more prominent US bank to hit than US Bank? Then again, maybe not.
Korean police are reportedly investigating the incident. The FBI had no comment Tuesday.
